Nutritional values

This salad covers the daily requirement of iodine and vitamin E! Iodine is an essential building block for the thyroid hormones that control the metabolism. They influence heart and circulation, heat regulation, sexuality, growth and physical performance. Vitamin E keeps the blood vessels elastic, protects cells and tissue and is good for supple joints.

Those who want to enjoy the slightly hot Mizuna taste more often can grow the leafy vegetables, which belong to the so-called "Asia Greens", in the garden, on the balcony or on the windowsill themselves. Many nurseries and seed dealers now offer the seeds.
